roL. LIV 

Books Needed 
In All Tongues 
To Send Russia 

"The Wellesley College Com- 
munity has a final opportunity 
to make its contribution to- 
wards a better understanding 
between America and the Soviet 
Union in the interest of peace 
ontributing to the Books for 
Russia campaign," announced 
Miss Hannah French, Research 

Librarian. 

This campaign, which was 
launched by the American so- 
, for Russian relief a year 
ago! is short of its goal of one 
million volumes of English clas- 
These books are needed 
to help restock major Russian 
libraries and schools which have 
been looted and destroyed dur- 
ing the German occupation. The 
quota for the Massachusetts area 
is 200.000 volumes. 

Large Reading Public 
The books which we send are 
assured of a reading public. The 
patrons of large libraries are 
so anxious to read books in Eng- 
lish that they wait from six to 
eight months for an opportu- 
nity to borrow them, explained 
Miss French. English is studied 
in most of the schools of Russia 
and there is tremendous interest 
in American and English litera- 
ture. 

As an example of the vital 
interest of the people the com- 
mittee cites an incident which 
Mired early in 1944. In the 
midst of the war the Russians 
held the Sixth All Union Shakes- 
peare Conference, the third 
which had taken place since the 
beginning of the war. Solomon 
Michaels, whose performance of 
"King Lear" in the Soviet Union 
has been acclaimed by many 
English critics as the greatest 
ever acted, commented, "In the 
USSR Shakespeare is every- 
where: in the street, in the 
homes, schools, libraries, on the 
stage and, what is. more impor- 
tant, on the front helping us to 
win the war." 

Well Known Works Popular 
Students should bring their 
gifts of books to the College Li- 
brary marked for the attention 
of Hannah D. French. Second 
hand books in good condition 
and new copies of English lit- 
erature from the time of The 
Canterbury Talcs to the present 
are most welcome. The writings 
of well known authors are par- 
tlcularly wanted. Translations, 
paper or cardboard books, mag- 
azines and outdated text, books 
are not acceptable. 

Books which indicate the do- 
noi's names will have a special 
book plate pasted on the fly- 
leaf. The donor's name will be 
typed onto the plate. "We have 
already collected about 250 vol- 
umes from faculty and towns- 
pie and we wish we might 
get at least as many from stu- 
dents before they leave," con- 
cluded Miss French.

Plans For' 46 
Freshman Week 

"We want to make Freshman | 
week into an organized whole 
and something which freshmen 
will always remember", ex- 
plained Nancy Steffens "48, head 
of Freshman Week for next year. 
Previously, C. A. was in charge 
of Freshman week but it was 
felt that since C. A. has many 
other duties to perform, it is 
necessary to have one commit- 
tee which can devote its entire 
attention to the first week. 

Appointed by "Steffy" and ap- 
proved by the C.A. Board, the 
members of the Freshman Week 
committee will all be juniors 
next yea'r. "We hope this will 
emphasize the relatiohship be- 
tween the juniors and the incom- 
ing class", said Steffy, "and we 
also want to try to make closer 
ties between big and little sis- 
ters in every way we can." 

The members of the committee 
arc Freshman Vaudeville, Ma- 



rion Ord; Campus Suppers, Jane 
Eliott; Big and Little Sisters, 
Mary Gustavson; Ask-me's, Sally 
Luten; Freshman Handbook, 
Ann Pond; Business Manager 
of Handbook, Marie Russell; and 
C. A. Calendar. Joan Wilson. 
Hope Freeman, Vice-President of 
C.A. is the general advisor of 
the committees. 



1930. 
was the youngest man to hold 
that office in the history of the 
state. He was reelected for the 
following two terms, but gave 
up his position to join the Navy 
in 1943. 

Taking botn his undergradu- 
ate and law work at the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota, where he 
was active in college debating 
and held many offices in the col- 
lege, government, Stassen was 
admitted to the bar of that state 
in 1929. While he was still in 
college he organized and became 
the first president of the Young 
Republicans League. 

After graduation from Law 
school he set up a practice with 
Elmer Ryan, now in Democratic 
politics, in a suburb of St. Paul. 
Elected as county attorney of 
Dakota County in 1930 he con- 
tinued in that position until 
1938. He served as temporary 
chairman of the Republican Na- 
tfonal Convention in 1940 where 
he delivered the keynote ad- 
dress, and was chosen National 
Chairman of the National Gov- 
ernor's Conference and Council 
of State Governments for 1940- 
1941. 



College Dormitories Named After 
Indians and Generous Benefactors 



Found 



The Information Bureau has 
in Its Lost-ami Found office a 
collection of every form of ac- 
cessory—earnings, books, mit- 
tens, scarves, bracelets, pens, 
and anything else that students 
rouhl possibly lose. Please col- 
let! your own belongings be- 
fore vacation. 



Indians and generous bene- 
factors figure largely in the no- 
menclature of Wellesley dormi- 
tories, the benefactors having an 
easily understandable lead. On 
the side of the red men, stand 
such buildings as Noanett, a 
tribute to an English Royalist 
who masqueraded many years as 
an Indian chief of the same 
name in this district. 

Norumbega, once the resi- 
dence of President Alice Free- 
man Palmer, was not named for 
the site of the Totem Pole as is 
often suggested. The name, it 
seems, was taken from the the- 
ory of Wellesley Professor Eben 
Norton Horsford, one of the co- 
founders of the building, that the 
Norsemen settled the "City of 
Norumbega" by the Charles 
River in the sixteenth century. 
Even the innocent name of 
Eliot has its connection with 
Massachusetts history. Origin- 
ally built as a boarding house 
for young women working in a 
Wellesley shoe factory, it was 
taken over by the college and 
named for John Eliot a mission 
us to the Indians in this re- 
gion. 

Benefactors Kate Too 
On the side of the benefactors 
stand such buildings as those of 
Hazard Quadrangle: Beebe. 
named for Captain John A. Bee- 
in ; Cazenove, named for the 
family of Mrs. Durant, who. with 
her husband, founded the col- 
lege; Pomeroy. named for a Mrs. 
Pomeroy; and Shafer. named for 
Helen Shafer, president ol the 
College 1887-1894. 

Munger, for example, was 
named In honor of the mother 



of Miss Jessie D. Munger '86, 
who not only gave the hall, but is 
the founder of Munger Scholar- 
ships at Wellesley and at other 
schools. Miss Munger visited 
"her hall" this spring and ex- 
pects to return for her class re- 
union during Alumnae week. 

A major power on the side of 
benetactor-named buildings is 
Hetty R. Green Hall, named at 
the request of Colonel Edward 
H. R. Green and his sister Mrs. 
Matthew Astor Wilks for their 
mother. 

Dower's Thespian Heritage 

Built originally as a barn, 
Dower House was remodelled 
to form a theater for Barn- 
swallows' Association and finally 
converted into a residence in 
1922. It receives its name from 
the fact that it was in this part 
of the campus that Mrs. Durant 
held her dower right during her 
life. Homestead also belonged 
to the Durants, having served as 
their summer homestead while 
they were waiting for theii new 
summer home to be built, and 
i in rein lies the name. 

Oakwoods. which served orig- 
inally as i in president's house, 
was made into a deans' residence 
in 192(5, when it was named 
"Oakwoods'' for President Haz- 
's home at Peace Dale. Rhode 
Island. This should solve the 
mystery of why Oakwoods is not 
completely surrounded by same. 

Neither Indian nor benefactor 
is Tower Court which was so 
named, as far as is known, be- 
cause it sounded sufficiently 
flossy and non-controversial. We 
on id imagine Durant Tower 
East ->l VV-ilv.n Court West.

KNOW THE POSSIBILITIES 

When trains stopped shaking the Quad houses 
las! Friday, some oi the paralysis which afferted 
the whole country penetrated to Wellesiey. 
Dates were broken. Dr. Rufue Jones could not 
come i<> speak in Chapel, there were rumors 
about food >up|>lif>, and the college in general 
awoke to the seriousness ol the situation which 
faces the nation. 

The bill to make strikes againsi the govern- 
ment illegal was before the Congress as News 
w.nt to press". Advocates of the measure 
claimed that it was necessary to save the coun- 
try from disastei , opponents, among them 
Harold Stassen, branded the proposed bill as 
"fascisl tactics," Feeling on both side- ran 
high, and many Americans felt that to Form 
any intelligent opinion they should know more 
about the situation,

V 1SSAR TAKE NOTE 

i ae i \\ , ill handful 

oi \\ ellesley .-indents witnessed the traditional 
inter-class crew races. « H a studenl bodj oi 
1,500, only a few passers-by cared enough for 

the oub • "i the races to waste valuable 

tunc attending them. 

Long hours, many ol them early in the morn- 
ing had been -pent by the members of the 
class crews, preparing for this event. Other 
activities had been pul aside bj these girls so 
that Welh sli y mighl si e a real race. These 
crews had -pun and enthusiasm and they 
hoped to find similar spirit and enthusiasm 
among then classmates. But where were their 
classmates on bhis long-prepared for afternoon? 
And did those who attended leave their spiril 
behind? Only a few 1949 Wellesiey Rahs!" 
could be discerned in the direction of the lake- 
fronl -and these from a handful ol Freshmea, 
eager to put to u<e iheir new class cheer. 

Perhaps ii is time to stop and ask ourselves 
a question. Can it be possible thai sports, as 
they exisl today a1 Wellesiey, do not fulfill 
their complete function, iii that the enthusiasm 
ol the participants is nol shared by the spec- 
tators? It i> true that the cancellation of 
Floal Nighl cul down on the crowd which would 
have attended the races but even at this event, 
the races would have been of secondary in- 
terest and importance. 

Among many suggestions for the solution of 
this problem, the initiation of intercollegiate 
-pint- has been frequently advanced. Perhaps 
intercollegiate sports would create a new spirit, 
unknown to the presenl student body. They 
would surely bring about greater interest in 
athletic activities, and it caun.it be denied that 
such activities are a vital part of B well-bal- 
anced college life. 

Is next year's crew-race to meet the same 
fate? How can we expect the crews to get up 
early in the morning in order to prime them- 
selves for the great event, if they know in 
advance that no one will be on hand to observe 
their efforts? If inter-class sports do not pro- 
vide enough interest among the students, why 
not intercollegiate sports?

YOU CAN TAKE IT WITH YOU 

As the recent stifling weather and all-too- 
inviting beauty of the outdoors will testify, 
summer is really coming. Most of us, while 
struggling to prepare for exams and finish those 
insistent final papers, are thinking longingly 
of the long summer months stretching ahead, 
and how we intend to spend them. 

This will be our first post-war summer. The 
majority of Wellesiey girls, after pre- 
vious Mm, in, rs spent in Washington, in war 
plant-, and in positions formerly held by men, 
are planning to enjoy it. After a steady diet 
of work, Wellesiey wants to play. 

Let us try to remember, in the months ahead, 
that we have occasionally enjoyed knowledge. 
We have groaned regretfully in the winter. 

["here are all sorts of books I'd just love to 

icad— if only I had the time." And, though 
anything connected with learning right now 
may have a distasteful appearance, we really 
in, vim it, 

The supplementary reading lists now being 
distribute^ by our major departments are for 
our benefit. The] are books directly related 
to the things we want to do. We can read 
them very much at our leisure— and, lesl 

forget, we can enjoy them. We are rather 

proud of our status as educated women— but 

u ' cannot be educated only part of the time, 

A large capgule of education cornea every 

day, and even in the BUmmei twill continue to 

come, in our daily newspapers. There are big 
ing the world today: will Britain and 
il "- I aited States manage to achieve unity with 
Russia? ran the United Nations prevenl a third 
world war? is labor entiUei fcrike? We 

have spent a part of oui college life learning 
aboul these issues, How aboul keeping it up 
to dafc 

: n while we plaj lei us go on learning 
Education, for better qi for worse, is a twelve 
iiiimtli job.

Beyond the Campus 



Ginny Beach '1,7 
Head of Forum 



The Alsop brother's article, 
"Tragedy of Liberalism," (Life, 
May 20th, and Forum Board this 
week) has aroused considerable 
controversy. Some have dis- 
missed it as "anti-Soviet, Hearst- 
McCormick" literature without 
giving it anothe rthought. Oth- 
ers have felt that it presented 
the essential truth — that liberals 
have got to stop deluding them- 
selves about the wonderful in- 
tentions of the Russians, recog- 
nize Soviet imperialism in Eu- 
rope and Asia for what it is, 
and advocate a policy of firm- 
ness that will stop Moscow-Com- 
munist expansionism. Which 
side is right? Certainly it is a 
question that cannot be ignored. 

The article showed, it seems 
to me. a real insight into the 
liberal dilemma in the United 
States today, and a keen analy- 
sis of the actual world situation 
— much as we /may hate to ad- 
mit it, even to ourselves. Its 
fallacy lay not in condemning 
the Russians for evil deeds that 
they have not committed, or 
have no intention of committing; 
but in failing to make clear the 
real causes of war, in failing to 
show that national sovereign 
states, unprotected by any law 
or force outside of their own 
arms, are bound inevitably and 
unquestionably to act as Russia 
is acting now, and as the United 
States and Great Britain and 
France and Argentina and any 
other sovereign state you can 
name (which thinks it has a 
chance of succeeding) is acting 
— perhaps with less firmness and 
less success it is true, but none- 
theless acting. It would be 
foolish for any state to stop 
producing atomic bombs or fail 
to make a bid for all the strat- 
egic bases it thought it had a 
chance of acquiring, unless it 
were sure, without any question 
or doubt, that every other state 
was disarming too. Russia has 
realistically recognized this fact; 
and has felt, that while she may 
not want an atomic war, she 



must stay strong to survive. 

This is exactly the policy thjl 
the Alsop 's ask the liberals and 
the United States as a whole to 
adopt (although of course irora 
our point of view it doesn't loot 
so bad, as we knoio that our a 
tentions are good). They saj 
that we cannot create the peace. 
ful and abundant world that 
all want unless we have th« 
power to be firm with the So- 
viets, unless we recognize as 
Roosevelt did that "appeasement 
is always wrong" and can "de- 
fleet Soviet policy and improve 
world conditions so that the U. 
S. and the U.S.S.R. can live at 
peace together without the ter. 
rible mutual suspicion, and deep 
ening divisions that now mart 
all our relations with each oth- 
er." 

The underlying assumption 
here— the assumption that 
many are deluding them 
with today — is that peace is a 
product of a strong balance ol 
power, where each big state 
recognizes its inability to dom- 
inate the other, and thus adopts 
a "policy of progress by inter 
nal development and equal part 
nership in the United Nations,' 
and thereby averts all dangfl 
of war and assures everlasting 
peace. When will people realize 
that there can be no peace until 
there is a world authority strong 
enough to inforce disarmament, 
and to bring a security based 
on more than a wishful hope 
that other side won't shoot ftrstj 
History proves without much 
question that wars cease 
tween peoples when security u 
insured by just and enforceable 
laws, and not until that time. 
There will be pe«ce between 
Russia and the United SI 
not when "the astute leaders ol 
the Soviet Union understanding 
their inability to compete wifl 
America" as the Alsop's claim 
but when there is created a fed' 
eral world government capable 
of making, interpreting, and erv 
forcing world law!

In Boston this Summer? 

Editors Note: Miss Helen W. 
Kaan of the Department of Zo-

appeal from the Boston Chapter 
of the Americun Red Cross. 
Dear Miss Kaan: 

We are facing great difficulty 
in providing enough volunteer 
workers to cover the Red Cross 
Information Desk at the* Bay 
State Club for servicemen on 
Boston Common during the sum- 
mer months, particularly week- 
ends. I am wondering whether 
you know of any members of the 
Wellesiey faculty or student body 
who will be staying near Boston 
this summer who might be in- 



terested in giving some time to 
this work. 

The job calls for someone be- 
tween the ages of twenty ;' n '' 
fifty with a pleasant personality' 
an alert mind, and consid,, 
knowledge of the city, (sincf 
many of the requests whicj 
come to the Desk now are for d>

Dr. Freeman Predicts Recovery Sigma Xi Hears 
Of France In Spite of Hardships) MacLane Speak 

About Research 



Organizer of American 
Army University Abroad 

Recounts Experiences 

■•France today is a convales- 
cing nation but there are many 
g!gns which show that she is well 
on the way to recovery," de- 
clared Dr. Stephen Freeman, 
Vice President of Middlebury 
College, in a lecture in Tower 
Court, May 21. Dr. Freeman has 
recently returned from France 
where he was instrumental in 
starting an American Army Uni- 
versity for occupation troops, In 
Biarritz, France. 

One of the chief signs of 
France's recovery is the "keen 
Jritical, spirit" with which the 
people are regarding their gov- 
ernment, they were not willing 
tu accept the constitution which 
has recently been proposed be- 
cause they didn't think it was 
good enough," declared Dr. 
Freeman. "They are willing to 
l/ait, in order to get what they 
want," he added. It also seemed 
to him that the French were 
Irving to reach an equilibrium in 
their politics, rather than tend- 
ing toward either the extreme 
(ight or extreme left. 
Spirit of Reform 
Another sign of recovery is 
the crusading spirit of reform 
which is sweeping France. "The 
people have progressive forward- 
looking ideas," said Dr. Free- 
man. "They want to remedy so- 
cial ills by slum clearance, bet- 
ter housing, nationalization of 
banks, etc." Instrumental in this 
and in the whole recovery of the 
country are the young people, 
who are taking extiaordinary 
initiative in all phases of French 
national life. 

According to Dr. Freeman, the 
French, though a proud people, 
are being very realistic about 
the fact that "they have well 
nigh exhausted their reserves of 
patience and energy." He added 
a plea for industrial and finan- 
cial support from the United 
States and other countries to 
help Fiance get on her feet 
again. 

Describing his experiences in 
helping to found the Army Uni- 
versity, Dr. Freeman said that 
the purpose of the institution 
was to "give qualified men an 
opportunity to readjust to the 
classroom." He remarked on the 
success of the university, saying 
that it had enrolled 4000 stu- 
dents in each of its eight-week 
sessions and that most of the 
courses taken there, would count 
three hours toward a college de- 
gree. 

Enrollment Large 
Dr. Freeman talked especially 
of the Liberal Arts Department, 
of which he was the head, saying 
that it was the largest of the 
departments and "of 12,000 
course enrollments, 3593 were in 
Liberal Arts." Modern Langu- 
ages were extremely popular. In 
the teaching of French, a modi- 
fied "army method" was used, 
which means that the speaking 
of the language was emphasized 
over the reading or writing. 
Students were taught to say 
simple French expressions before 
they saw them written. "Though 
I don't want to claim any miracu- 
lous results for the method," ex- 
plained Dr. Freeman, "I will say

Senate Offers 
Proposals For 
Society Rules 

Proposals suggested by Sen- 
ate at its last meeting, May 17, 
to the Inter-Society Council fol- 
low: 

1. That no formal investiga- 
tion of the societies take place 
for a period of two years in 
order that they may be allowed 
to function under normal con- 
ditions and in order that a fan- 
review of their value may be 
made at the end of this period 

2. That the Senate advise all 
the societies to enlarge their 
membership to include 45 stu- 
dents. The proposal would go 
into effect pending approval of 
two-thirds of the entire member- 
ship of the six societies. 

3. That the Senate suggest 
that the societies make a con- 
ceited effort toward acquaint- 
ance with the candidates, (a) 
opening weekly teas, and (b) 
staggering attendance of closed 
teas. 

4. That all forms of public ini- 
tiation be eliminated for good. 
(This is already largely in ef- 
fect.) 

5. That the Senate advise the 
Inter-Society Council to adopt 
uniform charges for the use of 
all houses, and to publicize an- 
nually the charges and regula- 
tions in regard to use of the 
houses by the student body at 
large, describing the facilities of 
each house so there will be freer 
use of the houses by non-mem- 
bers. 



Lane, of the Department of 
Mathematics at Harvard, in an 
address to the members of Sigma 
Xi, honorary society for the en- 
couragement of scientific re- 
search, Wednesday, May 22, in 
Pendleton. In his lecture, "Re- 
sarch, Invention and Adventure," 
which climaxed the induction of 
the society's twelve new mem- 
bers, Professor MacLane main- 
tained that, contrary to popular 
opinion, scientific research and 
invention are not dull under- 
takings by people who live her- 
mit-like existences. Rather, he 
said, "Research consists in con- 
tacts of individuals with similar 
interests" and these contacts 
very often lead to adventure. 
Practical Contributions 
Defining research as looking 
for "connections between old 
ideas" and as something which 
"puts a new turn on the direc- 



delegates from Wellesley pres- 
ent at the reading were Alice 
Rolph '46 and June Brundage 
'47. 

The girls were selected from 
more than a dozen try-outs to 
read for the college at the an- 
nual meeting in which Smith, 
Wellesley and Mount Holyoke 
participated. Harvard and Am- 
herst are also members of the 
organization and will take part 
in the program next year when 
it is to be held at Smith. The In- 
ter-collegiate Poetry Reading is 
scheduled to take place in Wel- 
lesley in 1948-49. 

Betty read some of the work 
of Winfield Townlcy Scott, which 
the po«t had presented at a read- 
ing here earlier in the year.

pointed out the many practical 
contributions which scientific re- 
search made to the technology 
of warfare. "A true scientist, ' 
said Professor MacLane, "is a 
person not only possessed with a 
knowledge of facts, but with the 
ability to appiy and analyze 
facts." During the war. he con- 
tinued, 'there were plenty of oc- 
casions wh?n the application of 
science was difficult." For ex- 
ample, a group of combat engi- 
neers in Florida were faced with 
a problem involving application 
of the "probability theory." They 
worked long and hard, the pro- 
fessor assured his audience, and Wrong Angle? 
finally achieved success, "they To News:

Students Debate 
C. G. Proposals 
In Mass Meeting 

Courts, Senate are Topics 
At Mass Town Meeting 

Widespread interest in a re- 
vision of College Government le4 
many students to attend the - 
"Town Meeting" May 23 in Pen- 
dleton to discuss possible 
changes in C. G. Mary Alice Ross 
'47, president of C. G., outlined 
the present systems, especially 
the mechanism of Senate. Jean 
KixMiller '47, Chief Justice, des- 
cribed, the functioning of the 
Court system. 

This mass meeting was the 
culmination of a growing feeling 
of dissatisfaction in the present 
system of College Government. 
Suggestions were made for more 
representation in Senate. One 
student moved that Senate be 
made more representative by 
house delegates, to be elected for 
purely legislative duties. These 
members in each house, it was 
maintained, would stimulate 
more interest in C. G., and that 
more people would take an ac- 
tive part in the government of 
the college community. 

In discussing the present Court 
system, most of those present 
felt that a voting jury would 
make for a more fair and demo- 
It was argued 



at your convenience. Miss Web- that the court system at present 
ber can be reached during the j j S too one sided, and that if

that when they completed the 
course the boys had a fairly good 
command of the language- -at 
least enough to get along." 

Dr. Freeman called the experi- 
ence of starting and teaching at 
the university an "unusual and 
stimulating" one in which he was 
greatly impressed and gratified 
by "the purposefulness and ma- 
turity" of the students. 



Danger in System 

"There is danger to research 
now," continued Professor Mac- 
Lane, "because of the systema- 
tists who want to reduce every- 
thing to system." Alluding to 
suggestions already made that 
scientific research be carried on 



Campus News re CG revision. 
It seems to me that we are ap- 
proaching the weaknesses in CG 
from the wrong angle. I think 
the difficulty lies in the lack of 
CG publicity about who com- 
prises Senate and Superior Court 
and what the functions of these 



in this country under the con- ] bodies are plus a lack of student 
trol of a central board, the speak- I initiative to find out. If stu- 
er warned that systematists dents would investigate how CG 
handicap science by trying to is organized they would realize 



control research because it is 
"impossible to predict where the 
gaps in scientific knowledge arc" 
Professor MacLane felt -that di- 
recting research by a central 
board would endanger progress 
because "science must be con 
nected with the adventurous 
element." 

Professor MacLane's lecture 
was followed by a reception in 
his honor, attended by the old 
and new members of the society. 
The reception was held in the 
Physics Library and Staff Room. 

Preceding the lecture, the 

twelve newly-elected members of 

the society were inducted by 

ceremonies led by Miss Louise

the verdict, character witnesses 
who perhaps have a closer rela- 
tionship to the defendant than 
the head of house or class dean, 
should be brought before the 
court. 

Suggestions were made that 
the defendant be allowed to re- 
main through the entire trial, 
rather than leaving before the 
discussion of her case. By re- 
maining, it was maintained, she 
would be able to "clear up" 
many pertinent facts that might 
otherwise be confused. It was 
decided, however, that such a 
method would be distasteful both 
to the defendant and to the 
Court. A final suggestion was 
made that each defendant be 
given an advocate who knew the 
case fairly well from her point 
of view. This advocate could re- 
main throughout the trial to 
straighten difficulties as they 
arose. 

Although no definite changes 
can be realized at present, the 
meeting passed a resolution that 
Senate be made more representa- 
tive, and that the jury in court 
cases be given the right to vote. 
Mary Alice Ross will appoint a 
committee to study further the

Bones has been very suspicious 
of nic lately because she thinks 
I am siek. I told her that it was 
perfectly normal to talk Rus- 
sian in my sleep and that it 
would help Miss Samuelson's re- 
search in nocturnal experiences. 
Bones' Russian isn't as modern 
as mine since she is still study- 
ing Peter the Great and I 
thought it would be just as well 
not to tell her what I was talk- 
ing about. 

As I remember. I was* talk- 
ing about my English professor 
who came to dinner last night 
and didn't recognize me. 1 
was very hurt because I looked 
the way I always look, except 
that I didn't have my hair on. 
And then he peered at me and 
said, "oh. Agnes, I'm so sorry, 
1 ju:>t realized who you are." 

Bones and I are very pleased 
about our rooms for next year. 
Dean Lindsay said she was par- 
ticularly careful to taicc our 
personalities and our characters 
into consideration, and that she 
was really very glad she had 
something so suitable for us. 1 
am happy about it because I 
wasn't sure that by the time she 
reached 780 there would be any- 
thing left. But she found a nice 
cozy corner for us in Power 
House, which is ideal because it 
is so near the Well, the boat 
house and the tennis courts. It is 
also near Founders and the libe, 
but that isn't so important be- 
cause Bones and J don't go 
there often. We thought we 
might miss the Quad, but we've 
found that the smoke at the Pow- 
er House will keep us happy. It 
is much nicer smoke than the 
Quad smoke, too, because the 
trains don't come by with it. 

I have been having confer- 
ences with my teachers, who are 
hoping they can look forward to 
having me here next year. I told 
them not to worry, that I have 
a strong mind and sun means 
nothing to me. Besides, the 
seniors won't let us sunbathe 
outside their rooms anymore 
They say it's because their gen- 
erals are coming soon. I can't 
see why that makes any differ- 
ence except that maybe we 
wouldn't be dignified enough for 
the brass hats. However, I 
thought they would object if I 



Mr. Proctor Is 
Chapel Speaker 

"Christianity is a way of life, 
an attitude often obscured by 
insistence on ritual and cree- 
dal conformity." declared Mr. 
Thomas Hayes Procter, of the 
Department of Philosophy, who 
spoke in Chapel Sunday, May 26. 
Taking the Sermon on the 
Mount as his text, Mr. Procter 
pointed out that this attitude is 
one of love, which is "boundless 
beyond the barriers of family, 
class, convention, and even em- 
braces the enemy." The signifi- 
cance of Jesus' mission is lost 
without these sayings which "il- 
luminate his parables, his ac- 
tions, and give meaning to the 
crucifixion." 

Jesus' advocation of complete 
abandonment of retaliation, said 
Mr. Procter, was a revolution- 
ary reformation which depends 
for its understanding on insight. 
"All enmity is blindness, or con- 
centration on superficiality. Ego- 
ism is blindness to the fact that 
I'm not the only person in the 
world: snobbishness is the blind- 
ness that limits the world to one 
class of wealth or intellectual su- 
periority. Our neighbor is any- 
one who needs us, and to whose 
good we can contribute." 

Mr. Procter discussed the dif- 
ficulty of having the attitude of 
love for those we dislike. "Love 
is only worthy of the name," he 
said, "when we see its purpose. 
He who loves God loves good, 
and must aspire toward the 
good in executing God's will 
with supreme benevolence. In 
this sense, morality becomes re- 
ligious, and religion becomes 
moral." 

Mr. Procter spoke in place of 
Mr. Rufus Jones who was un- 
able to come because of the rail- 
road strike.

Bones wants to go skiing next

the right attitude. After all 
we've been skiing every week- 
end, and I would like to stay 
here and think about what a 
wonderful year this has been. I 
am afraid that Bones will be on

'T.W.' Presents 
One Act Plays 

Two plays Will o' the Wisp by 
Doris Halmar and Suppressed 
Desires by Susan Glaspell, were 
given in the Theater Workshop 
Friday night, May 24. Produced 
by students with casts chosen 
from the Acting Committee of 
Barn, the plays were presented 
for the Department of Speech 
and the newly instituted Drama 
majors and were open to the pub 
lie. 

The first play, a fantasy deal- 
ing with the conllict between the 
poet's inspiration and the ma- 
terial things of the world, was 
directed by Teddy Lehrer '48. 
The cast included Mary Anna 
Bate '48, as the Will o' the Wisp, 
Betty Maxon '48, as the Gountry- 
woman, Mimi Gilchrist '48, as 
the Lady, and Peggy Ennor '48 
as the Maid. The second, a 
comedy about a woman who be- 
comes infatuated with psycho- 
analysis, was directed by Nancy 
Scofield '48. Charlotte Stone '48, 
played Henrietta; Irene Peterson 
'46, Stephen; and Jinus Rogers 
'46, Mabel. 

The plays were produced with 
the assistance of Mr. Frederick 
Jessner, director of "Theater 
Workshop, and Mr. Louis P. Ga- 
lanis, faculty adviser for scenery. 



Faculty's Baseball Team 
Trounces Student "Ten" 

With the first clear week-end 
in months as incentive, the Atlj. 
letic Association held its annual 
Spring Field Day last Saturday 
at two o'clock on the playing 
fields. In spite of the heat and 
| lure of Lake Waban, spectators 
watched anxiously as the faculty 
team trounced the students in 
a heated softball game. Tennis 
enthusiasts watched not only the 
interdormitory finals but an r\ 
hibition match of mixed doubles 
by Judy Atterbury '46 and Al- 
bert Stitt against Mia Chandler 
'47 and Malcolm Hill. An ex- 
hibition lacrosse game and arch- 
ery balloon shoot completed the 
sports events of the afternoon. 
Softball Triumph 

Under the leadership of Miss 
Mary Pilliard, the faculty soft- 
ball ten defeated Bev Ayres' M8 
student team, 10-2. Pitching for 
the winners, Miss Evelyn Dillon 
"fanned out" many of the stu- 
dent team. Betsy Ancker '49 
pitched for the blue team (thus 
called because of their blue 
caps). Faculty stars included 
Mr. Michael Zigler as catcher, 
Mr. Lawrence Smith on first 
base, Mr. Ralph Williams as left 
short-stop, Miss Mary Pilliard on 
second base. Mr. Victor Smith 
as right short-stop, Mr. Hinners

A House 

in the Uplands 

Critic: Deborah Newman, 'J/8 
Ereki ne Caldwell has presented 
the American reader with a col- 
lection of characters who inhabit 
the back hills of Georgia. We 
have been amused, shocked, and 
disturbed by his tragic tales of 
the poverty-stricken people who 
miraculously continue to exist in 
spite of the overwhelming condi- 
tions which forever confront 
them. The name of Caldwell 
evokes for the reader the mem- 
ory of the Lesters of Tobacco 
Road or the Douthits of Tragic 
Ground and the author's fame 
as a writer has thus far rested 
on his ability to portray theso 
pathetically funny characters in 
a manner which appeals to the 
sympathies of the reader. 

Mr. Caldwell has attempted to 
change his formula in A House in 
the Uplands. He has crossed 
over to the other side of the 
tracks and chosen to write about 
the decadent Southern aristo- 
cracy. But by so doing, the au- 
thor has eliminated much of the 
humor and tragedy which is to 
be found in his other books, and 
has added nothing to replace 
these. 

New Formula Fails 

It is a good idea for a writer 
to change his formula, and cer- 
tainly Mr. Caldwell, whose books 
were beginning to acquire an al- 
most monotonous pattern, had 
every right to attempt a new 
recipe for his fiction. But in 
order to achieve an entirely dif- 
ferent creation, all the ingredi- 
ents must be sufficiently altered. 
Mr. Caldwell has evidently con- 
sidered it enough to clwose a 
new class of Southern society; he 
apparently has not discovered 
that he cannot write about these 
people in the same manner which 
he has employed to portray his 
low-class whites and create a 
story which will equal his former 
works. 

Grady Dunbar, the chief 
character of Mr. Caldwell's new 
novel, is not unlike his shiftless 
irresponsible neigbors, the 
characters of former Caldwell 
tales. But while we may smile at 
Jeeter Lester as he pursues his 
impossible goals, we can find 
nothing humorous in the acts of 
the supposedly charming bully of 
A House in the Uplands. 
Characters Unconvincing 

If it was the author's inten- 
tion to evoke sympathy for the 
downfall of the Dunbars he has 
entirely failed. The modern 
reader cannot be classed with 
the showboat audience who wept 
and cheered alternately as the 
melodrama was enacted. Even 
Grady's dying words to his 
Wife, "Lucyannie . . . think of 
me sometimes . . ." are like a 
burlesque of a romance. Mr. 
Caldwell has failed to make 
Grady a convincing character 
with the result that the reader 
cannot take his story seriously. 

But if Grady is all black, his 
wife Lucyanne is all white. 
Proud, but sweet and trusting, 
she somehow manages to love 
Grady despite his maltreatment 
of everyone with whom he 
comes into contact. Grady's 
mother, whose "God have mercy 
on me" becomes rather tiresome

Tree Day P^Arayal of Kipling's \Art 



n 



Jungle Book" Pleases Audience 

Critic: Joanne Lundholm '',7 



In a sense it is unfortunate 
that the Tree Day dance pro- 
duction of Kipling's Jungle Book 
was performed with such pro- 
fessional excellence. By this lim- 
its merits as colorful panorama, 
highlighted by unforgettable 
solo interpretations of Mowgli's 
animal world has been thorough- 
ly lauded by critical and appre- 
ciative members of the Tree Day 
I audience. 

It is certainly to the credit ol 
all tne participants in Welles- 
ley's own Jungle Book that the 
spectators relaxed and enjoyed 
the performance without ques- 
tion or conscious analysis. How- 
ever, one wonders if the audi- 
ence, charmed by the artistry of 
a finished production, might not. 
have been insensitive to the par- 
ticular technical accomplish- 
ments of the choreographers, di 
rectors, and dancers. 

Technical Difficulties 

For it is at this time, when 
one is only teased by recurring 
impressions of Panther's intoxi- 
cating fluid movements, of Mon- 
keys' kicking up their tails, or 
of Mowgli's delightfully grave 
bows, that one begins to think 
of the difficulties which the dan- 
cers waved aside apparently with 
facility, actually with a great 
deal of study and revision. 

Perhaps the most unique, and 
at the same time the most chal- 
lenging problem, was that of 
presenting animals, not people. 
Obviously, the dancers could not 
attempt to imitate accurately the 
animals of their temporary in- 
carnations. Instead, they chose 
(and brilliantly) to convey the 
essential "quality" of their re- 
spective animals. The prancing 
grey creatures did not pretend 
to be monkeys; they were con- 
vincingly "monkeyish. " 

".Monkeyish" Realism 
But to be "monkeyish," or 
"tigerish," or even tree-like, they 
had to sustain that impression 
throughout their entire exhibi- 
tion. This accomplishment of 
realism would have been diffi- 
cult enough had they only to 
walk across the jungle-stage. As 
it happened, no one would have 
doubted that Mowgli was chas- 
ing a genuinely threatening 
tiger. Another technical detail 
that seemed so convincing to 
spectators that it might even 
have passed by unnoticed was 
Kahn's characteristic tiger-fall. 

What made the performance 
delightfully entertaining was the 
precise individuality of each ani- 
mal; what made the performance 
warmly appealing was the hu- 
man interpretation of distress, 
triumph, humor, and dignity 
among the jungle character. The 
dancers superbly transposed the 
quality of wild animals to the 
medium which would best be ap- 
preciated by human critics.

transposition was that of an out- 
door setting. Many of the usual 
theatrical devices of an indoor 
production had to be altered or 
even discarded in order to meet 
the peculiar difficulties of a vast. 
open stage. Although the audi 
ence might very easily have feit 
distant, physically and sympa- 
thetically, from ;h< action of the 
dance, there actually was not a 
moment when the dancers did 
not have complete command of 
attention. 

To direct the audience's atten 
tion towards the significant ac- 
tion required absolute coopera- 
tion from every character. For 
example, when Kahn made his 
first entrance, Mowgli exagger- 
ated by means of timing and 
force every movement of his ex- 
tended arm in order to project 
his awareness of the villain. 
Whereas this scene was a dra- 
matic one (and its effect was 
therefore more readily carried to 
the audience) the dancers' skill 
at projection was even more 
sharply defined in their convey- 
ance of humor. Such comic de- 
tails as Mowgli's gleeful tickling 
of Panther or the monkeys grab- 
bing their tails were casually 
but emphatically portrayed. 
Pleasing Patterns 

Another all-important element 
in the choreography of the out- 
door dance program was the ar- 
rangement of groups and solo 
dancers in a pattern. In every 
incident the composition of the 
figures created a pleasing pic- 
torial effect. This problem of 
spacing was competently exe- 
cuted not only in group scenes, 
but also in scenes with only 
two or three characters dancing 
in conscious relation to one an- 
other. 

The audience has generally 
agreed that Wellesley's produc- 
1 ion of Jungle Book succeeded in 
creating a unity of effect; now 
that they are no longer under 
the immediate spell of Mowgli 
and his jungle friends, this audi- 
ence is becoming more aware of 
the technical perfection whiOi 
contributed to that artistic unity.

Chasseriau 

Critic: Kathleen Depue '',1 
The assemblage of Romantic 
works of Delacroix, Gericault, 
and Chasseriau at the Fogg Mus- 
eum is a rare opportunity to 
understand the artistic expres- 
sion of an attitude toward life 
characteristic of an historical 
period which finds echoes in our 
own post-war escapism. In a 
search for beauty through per- 
sonal excitement with nature the 
triad find three answers. 

The, master of them all, Geri- 
cault, achieves the greatest ser- 
enity by the use of massive form. 
His pencil study for the Race of 
Barbieri already shows his thrill 
in the conflict of man against 
nature. Despite his opposition of 
•great forces he maintains a ser-

Theatre 

Cyrano de 
Bergerac 

Crit; : Carolyn a. Hetibrun '',7 

The modern theatei is never 
so pitifully shown up in all its 
hollowness as when a production 
such as Cyrano <i bergerac 
comes to demonstrate all that a 
play can be. In a word, it is good 
theater. Those who can see it up 
here or in New York when it ar- 
i ought to do so simply be- 

cause it is the best entertain- 
ment to come along in many a 
blue moon. It is not recommend- 
ed because it is a "classic," or 
something your " education will 
not be complete without, hows 
ever true those statements may 
be. It is recommended because it 
will provide you with an excit- 
ing and gripping evening, long 
to be remembered. 

This reviewer, who has never 
seen another production of 
Cyrano, is in no position to com* 
pare it with previous perform* 
ances, but certainly this Ferrer 
production is a masterly one. The 
acting is completely satisfying. 
Jose Ferrer makes you believe la- 
Cyrano as completely as though 
you had come into the theater 
with him. He is brisk and concise 
in his humor, restrained in his 
pathos, and remarkably skillful 
in portraying that special sort 
of gallantry which conceals but 
does not utterly hide a deep un* 
happiness. t 

Ferrer Superior 

The other actors are all out" 
shone by Ferrer, both because 
Cyrano as a character so domw 
nates the play, and because Fer- 
rer is so magnificant. But Leif 
Erickson is very skillful as the 
inarticulate but handsome Chris- 
tian, and helps Ferrer make the 
scene under Roxane's balcony an 
Utterly delightful one. Ruth Ford 
is thoroughly satisfactory in the 
part of Roxane, though in the 
last scene her eloquence does not 
seem quite adequate to meet 
Ferrer's.

Around the Vil 

Better hurry down to the Vil 
for a last look around before you 
lock all your suitcases and leave 
college behind. Just arrived at 
Gross Strauss is a new supply 
of tailored and dressy blouses, 
just the thing for that train 
ride home. While you are in 
there you'll probably want to 
take advantage of the Spring 
Clearance Sale. There are smart 
coats, suits, and dress— some at 
half price, many wonderful bar- 
gains, and all sales are final. 

It's a long way— sometimes — 
from the Vil to the Quad or 
Tower, particularly when you "re 
bowed down with all your pur- 
chases; so just call WELlesley 
1600 and let Le Blanc Taxis help 
you. 

It won't be long before the 
days of swimming in a lake and 
sunning on the sand are here. 
Alw.nys look your best in a pique 
or gaily plaid taffeta bathing 
suit from Hill and Dale. You'll 
be the belle of the beach. 

One thing more, don't forget 
to let the College Taxis help you 
with your crating and packing 
problems, as well as set you on 
your way home.

imaginative and colorful sets and 
nmes, underlines quite re- 
markably the swashbuckling, 
bravado atmosphere of the day 
which made the stoty possible, 
and rendered Cyrano the magni- 
ficent and pathetic person that 
he was. The directing, by Mel- 
chor G. Ferrer (no relation to 
the actor) is perhaps the weak- 
est part of a production notably 
strong throughout. One senses I 
rather that Jose has more or! 
dominated the stage, allow- 
ing others to fill in as best they ! 
could. At any rate, when he is' 
absent, which is notable only in I 
the first scene, there is a dis- \ 
tinct lack df unity. 

The beginning of the first act 
did not seem to be handled quite 
as delightfully as could have 
bei-n^ though the rough spots 
may 'be smoothed over by the 
time the production reaches New 
York. There was a bit too much 
confusion, and while the atmos- 
phere was got over well, the ' 
point of the scene was rather a < 
long time emerging. It is hoped ' 
that a girl selling wine who I 
sounded like a cigarette girl in 
a night club, and for whom we 
have searched the original in 
vain, will soon be omitted. 

This play. particularly for 
those who have hot seen a pro- 
duction of Cyrano, cannot be rec- 
ommended strongly enough. If 
you have come to feel some doubt 
as to what a good play really is, 
go to see this. If you have felt 
unsatisfied by recent plays, go to 
see it. Or simply if you want a 
thoroughly enjoyable and enter- 
taining evening at the theater, 
order your tickets now. 



Miggs Ignatius, '47 Legenda Editor 
Shuns Athletics, Takes to Comp 



"It all began", sighed Migg3, 
"when I was born a month too 
soon. My mother was frightened 
by a runaway lagoon". Thus be- 
gan the life of Helen Mary Ig- 
natius (Miggaling to intimates), 
which, after many vicissitudes 
and cataclysms, has brought her 
to her present position in the 
class of '47 as Editor of Legenda 
for next year. 

According to Miggs, she was 
all set to be a Phys. Ed. major 
before she came to college but 
several unfortunate experiences 
with athletics have thwarted her 
desires in this direction. One 
(which she has been known to 
tell rather frequently when con- 
versation is lagging) occurred 
when she was swimming on La- 
guna Beach in California (her 
native state). Noticing that all 
eyes and binoculars were on her. 
she began to think that perhaps 
her swimming form was improv- 
ing at last, so she was rather 
surprised on looking behind her 
to see that a seal had been fol- 
lowing her for quite a while. As 
a result of this adventure Miggs 
has taken an aversion to seal 
coats, prefering mink-dyed chin- 
chilla instead. 

Another athletic catatrosphe 
occurred when she capsized 
while sailing at Laguna Beach 
and was run over by a starboat. 
She was also greatly humiliated 
once while on a hunting trip in 
East Africa when she broke her 
shoulder shooting wild gorse. 
Perhaps the greatest blight on 
her athletic life is the fact that 
her two brothers, "who have won 
all sorts of tournaments" have 
always flatly refused to play 
tennis with her.

crushed. Miggs determined to 
major in English Composition, 
largely because her brother gave 
her a typewriter and she want- 
ed a chance to practice on it. 
Also she knew it would give her 
plenty of time to sit. 

But her life is far from dull. 
Her day begins at five a.m. when 
she rises for a quick trot 13 
times around the Quad (Miggs 
is not superstitious). At six a.m. 
she takes a cold shower and 
then settles down for a luxuri- 
ous breakfast in bed, served by 
the Copley Plaza, (usually three 
cups of coffee). At 7:30 she dons 
her Schiaperelli-inspired apron 
in blue and white stripe with ;\ 
tie back — and waits on. Miggs is 
said to resemble quite faithfully 
the "Great White Father" in her 
hair net. 

Following this she drops in to 
the Well for a cup of coffee and 
then spends the rest of the 
morning at one Comp class or 
another". Lunch at the Well 
with her literary circle is fol- 
lowed in rapid fire succession 
by two phone calls to New York, 
a swift dip in the pool, and a

As editor of Legenda next

her "shaggy-dog" humor of Jun-

ry that perhaps there will be "no 
'47 Legenda," she has debated 
on printing the annual in invisi- 
ble ink, or with the type upside 
down. However, after much per- 
suasion she has promised not 
to depart from the "straight and 
narrow any more than to slant

after the first chapter, might 
have been an interesting charac- 
ter, but she too is a type rather 
than a person, and not a very 
novel type at that. Mr. Cald- 
well has done a better job of 
characterization with Ben Bax- 
ter, Grady's lawyer cousin, and 
Brad Harrison, a tenant farmer, 
but his fascination with the villi- 
anous Grady causes him to over- 
shadow these characters with the 
contemptible actions of the last 
of the Dunbars. 

Plot Skimpy 

It is hard to see just what Mr. 
Caldwell wished to accomplish 
by writing his latest book. The 
plot is skimpy and well-worn; 
the atmosphere of reality which 
he has heretofore managed to 
convey in some of his novels is 
completely lacking. Nowhere 
does the reader experience the 
pity or fear which should ac- 
company a tragedy. A House in 
the Uplands leaves one com- 
pletely indifferent to the state 
of things. 

Mr. Caldwell suggests that 
nature is gradually seeing to it 
that the decadent Southern aris- 
tocracy disappears. One cannot 
help wishing that he had seen 
fit to let nature take its course 
without attempting to describe
